WHY THIS CHALLENGE?
We need to change the way we power our daily lives. Cities consume the majority of the energy supply, often powered by fossil fuels. Therefore cities and metropolitan areas offer a huge opportunity to transform the way we generate and use energy. We need creative solutions to get as much power from as little energy as possible, wasting as little as we can. That is why, together with Ikea Foundation, we are seeking design interventions that integrate renewable energy, energy saving and energy efficient approaches. Read more about the reasons behind this challenge.
The open call for submission will be launched on the 4th of September and is open until 15 November 2018. In each city there is a Design Jam organised to help prospect participants to inspire and generate ideas for submission.
